Under NAC 467.259, the UFC seems to be obligated to reimburse all of those fighters under their bout agreements if Zuffa doesn't use them in the Toronto event ("the next program staged by the promoter").

When UFC 151 was cancelled, a howl of protest arose from fighters on the main and undercard fights, with a number expressing financial concern.
However, although sponsor money may be forgone, ZUFFA will apparently be paying fighters their show money, or providing fights on the next card, according to the laws of the Nevada State Athletic Commission.
NAC 467.259 Unarmed combatant not used in program must be used in next program or reimbursed. (NRS 467.030) If a promoter enters into a bout agreement with an unarmed combatant for a contest or exhibition in a program of unarmed combat, but the promoter, without reasonable cause, does not use the unarmed combatant in that program, the unarmed combatant must be used in the next program staged by the promoter or be reimbursed pursuant to the bout agreement.
